by the change in book value versus the s&p 500 with dividends added back. i mean, you can buy a -- an index fund, a very low cost index fund and get those results. so unless we're delivering something better than those results over the years, we aren't doing anything. and it's true now that our -- the real value of berkshire is considerably greater than book value. but year to year, book value knot a bad tracking measure of how our intrinsic value is. some years we -- well, generally speaking, if the s&p has a big up year, we're going to fall short because they're 100% in stocks. we're a third in stocks and then we -- hacks affect our gabes. we take 35% off those gains as they occur. but ur job is to beat them over time. >> berkshire was up by 14%. >> 14.4% for me to be rounding there. is that a reflection, you think b, of -- this has now been four years running that berkshire has outperformed the s&p there. is that a reflection of how big berkshire has gotten at this point? >> both. but it's beat us three out of four. and, of course, we've still never had a five-year period when we've fallen sh
the market has had. ten straight updays as not happened since 1996. one analyst, a key analyst changing his tune on beaten down jc penney. is he calling a bottom? we will tell you why. we have been seeing a lot of much better housing numbers. but there is a wave of foreclosures that may swamp homeowners from sea to shining sea. hi, simon. >> good afternoon to you. we're up 62 points on the dough. so well on its way to a tenth straight positive close. this would be the eighth straight record breaking close for the dow. that is unprecedented. year to date, the index is up an astounding 10.7%. the dow is also on track for its best quarter of the year since 1998. a lot of stats there. since 1950, there have only been 12 times when the douw has finished the first quarter 8% or more. -- now as far as the s&p, the broader index, we are very close now to the one-time record close of 1565. the inter-day record is 1566. both of those numbers are within striking distance of where we are trading now. the s&p is up. that is a bull market. let's get to bob for all the action today. >> i hope you got all
's intended, just as positive and constructive criticism. okay? good. what has changed about how you feel about what's your parents' money and what's your money now? >> i like having my own money. like, i appreciate it more, i find. >> right. >> and i feel better when i spend my own money compared to when i spend theirs 'cause i know i've worked for the things i'm purchasing. >> right. >> i feel like it's well-earned rather than just taking it or asking for it. in the long run, like, it's made me a lot happier. >> good. >> and i'm a lot happier to be who i am and, like, proud. and i enjoy going to work and going home to my house and helping out my friends. >> you stay on track, and you have a great future ahead of you. you now have the tools. you know how to make a budget. >> [ laughs ] >> you know not to go back into debt. don't spend money you don't make. track your money, set limits on what you're spending, and you'll be fine. okay, you know what? i think you did really well. i am very pleased with how you did. i'm so pleased, i'm giving you all the money. [ laughter ] >> thank you. >>
was an astonishing 7.2%. there you can see the three-month change has moved from minus 30 percent to plus 45.6%. abigail i cite this because first of all business investment is crucial to growth. second of all, it's having a tremendous comeback in the last six months and third of all it could be a great job creator, what's your take? >> i agree with you. these are excellent numbers. if you take it back to november, the growth is actually 9.3% for the highest growth in many, many years. this is clearly a positive for the economy. i think if you put this together with pending sales, case-shil r case-shiller, i think there are some warm spots in the economy. we're seeing some improvement. on the other hand, we have the mediocre job perform manages. ism is in a down trend. the all important velocity of money. >> i intend to agree. isn surprised everybody. andy cross, one thing i want to note though. we have this sort of disconnect between profits and jobs. okay. i get that. now if these capital investment numbers continue, this is so important, i think, to the stock market. it means profits wil
altogether. now, speaking of which, as expected, no change in policy in the boj this time around. investors are looking forward to a new regime change at the central bank when a new chief comes on board. if all goes well, kuroda could be confirmed next week. many expect the central bank to release fresh moves. is this then the calm before the storm? we'll have analysis on just what the new governor has up his sleeve live at 10:20 cet. first, though, check on markets in asia. li sixuan joins us from asia. we just talked about the bank of japan. what was the market reaction? >> thank you the despite the dow racking up another record high, asian bourses were. the boj may be bracing for bolder actions under the new governor at its next meeting in april. the nikkei 225 rose briefly ending a fresh 4 1/2 year high and ended up 0.3%. olympus shares made solid gains today, up 5.5% after the nikkei business daily said the company ames to slash interest bearing dead with around $1 billion for the year. in china, investors remained cautious with key economic data out due out tomorrow and this weekend.
changes. at this point, the committee judge said no adjustment was warranted. >> so, they can vary the purchases if the economy looks better and he has all the labor market indicators, i thought he was putting us on warning that he may not do $85 billion every month this year. >> well, i think, larry, i think you are right. previous statements said that they were going to separate the bond purchases from money policy. but today he was more specific and you hit it right on the head and you introduced the sustainability quote. it seems to me that that was establishing a criteria that we have not heard quite that -- quite as specifically before. >> i'm not saying that they will change the zero interest rate target. but i'm saying, let me go to my pal, tony fratto, i heard him say that he could slow down the bond purchases that means create less money if the economy continues to grow. >> i think that's right. we are seeing that kind of transaction in the he economy, and the chairman was clearly signaling that. he was trying to signal it with the 6.5% target as a place to look down the
month with share prices at $35 and change. let's hope that happens because the stock is now at $41.50. that was one of the most successful stocks of the era. i won't discount the closing price, maybe four below, it's got to, have it has the best price trajectory of any right now. this is a couple we stood behind for ages saying they paid with the 3.8% deal and the stock has been creeping up. each time the stock gets hammered the analysts don't like it. why? there's been no real small business quote, so be careful. however, it's been a terrific buy after the quarter every time. finally, very controversial, we have pbh, remember that old one? you know how much we like the ceo. the street's turned against pvh, though. they are worried about the end grags of mortigo into the family of pvh brands. i think that's a mistake to turn on pvh. i would buy some before and after the quarter beginning with this, because when it reports, what we are going to find out that mortico brings to pvh that whole part of calvin klein it didn't have. it has the whole family of calvin klein brands. i think
structural change in the japanese economy. if they do, the experiment can end well, and that's in some sense what markets are counting on. >> what do we do about income disparity? if the government tries to redistribute, it doesn't work, does it? >> so, you know, when we talk about tax policy, changes in tax rates as was described over the debt limit, what's the first thing that we all ask ourselves and "the new york times" runs? what are the distributional consequences? will the rich be paying more? what about the middle class? shouldn't we be having that same discussion in the conduct of monetary policy? if you think about this monetary policy, if you've got the freedom, like ken and stan, to devote huge amounts of money into liquid assets, to play the risk game, you're going to be a huge beneficiary. so this is in some sense a policy where we also need to think about the distributional consequences. and this is in some sense a transfer to people that are rich. >> trickle-down economics. >> stan calls this trickle-down economic policy. others can see if it worked in fiscal. we'll see if it
of the way which people are concerned about in the short term. >> does today's number change your mind in terms of when the fed starts winding back given the fact that the employment number is definitely much better than everyone expected? >> much better. economists like to see trends. one month does not make a trend. they are going to make sure that it is gaining traction, and then they will start talking about using words about the overall economy, making it stronger, better. the ten-year yield has crossed over, too, after the data came out this morning. we expect it to see higher, but the fed is even talking about keeping their balance sheet exactly the way it is and letting run off so that the market doesn't suffer dislocations. >> have to run here, folks. let me take a quick survey. everybody likes this market of the four guests we have here. who expekts a correction and how much of a correction do you think could happen? rich? >> we could be in a quiet period. 95% of s&p 500 companies have reported earnings. not going to see earnings coming back until april. alcoa coming out so d
and the s&p 500. looks like this, a similar chart pattern, decline of the session right now of 5 and change. >> let's get to today's closing number with four very smart people. we have carol roth, brian bellski, michael holland, and our own rick santelli. welcome to all of you. ladies first. you're getting some of your merger activity, carol, that you've been looking for, even as this market goes higher. >> absolutely, bill. as we've been saying, buyouts are going to continue and they're going to continue. and i think that this really is a stock picker's market. and if i'm going to put my money anywhere, and i have, the one that i really like is bed bath and beyond. i mentioned this on the program a couple weeks back. it has now been validated in a number of publications. you have a company that's trading at a very reasonable valuation. it's got a net cash position and a very high historical return on invested capital. so to me, that creates a really good recipe for a potential buyout, and i think that that name and potentially others in the luxury goods sector, as well as throughout consum
? have you changed any of your behavior in terms of allocating capital, as a result of what we've seen in the last 48 hours? >> no, not really, maria. i still think that cyprus is certainly something to watch. but i think it's just part of the negotiation process, exactly what's happening in greece. we have to watch and see if it accelerates and this idea sweeps around europe, but i doubt that's going to happen. i actually think that europe is starting to present some opportunities. you have some opportunities, perhaps selectively in companies like adidas. nestle, as long as you're conservative and look for some dividends and look for some growth names that have good market penetration with consumers on a more affordable ba base, i still think there's opportunity in europe. the thing i would be concerned about right now is china. i'm a little concerned that china is starting to losing handle on what's happening in their economy, in terms of what's happening with real estate prices. that's something you've got to look at very carefully. >> okay. steven hammers, you've been skeptical of
for that. but if it does, you've got to buy it. because he thinks diana shipping is a $9 and change name headed to $14. that's in keeping with my view that this group is back. and for speculators, just speculators, it might be, along with the airlines and the mortgage insurers, the best place to play this market right now. after the break, i'll try to make you more money. >>> coming up, bill of health? all week cramer is checking out the cutting-edge science behind some of the biggest players in the biotech industry. tonight, a company forming a pipeline to fight devastating diseases. is it time to get behind their efforts. announcer: where can an investor be a name and not a number? scottrade. ron: i'm never alone with scottrade. i can always call or stop by my local office. they're nearby and ready to help. so when i have questions, i can talk to someone who knows exactly how i trade. because i don't trade like everybody. i trade like me. that's why i'm with scottrade. announcer: scottrade- proud to be ranked "best overall client experience." [ male announcer ] this is a reason to look
. and that's the big change of 2013. the big change to so many skeptics, including many in the media refusing to recognize. the markets have little memory and no justice. you may think all bank stocks should be sold because deutsche bank and bvva are going down. but if you're a loan officer in columbus, ohio, you don't know or even care about cyprus. and if you're a banker at citigroup, you're trying to figure out how to handle the huge influx of capital from the continent. what are we supposed to sell, right? what are we supposed to sell because of this inner relation or lack thereof? how many times, how many times does that have to occur to people before we realize how rong it is? how many times do we have to sell raw stores or bristol-myers because of cyprus? someone say we need to sell every single time we get bad news out of europe. i would say the admonition that there's a sucker born every minute fits these fine. every time the future sellers get in there and blowing out of stocks all over the place, it's been a terrific opportunity to -- >> buy, buy, buy! >> it's not bullishness peopl
cuts at the same time but no structural changes to medicare and the question is will that get -- do either of these plans get anybody anywhere or is everyone talking to themselves? >> they're talking to themselves. we discussed it yesterday. in the last negotiations you still have the fact there are republicans who think that the republicans gave too much and then there are democrats who think that the democrats didn't get enough. so you have those clashing interests. >> i think what happened in january kind of derailed everything because by having these incremental advances instead of a grand bargain throws off the possibility that you do get the grand bargain. you see both sides digging in making sure they respond to their base saying the types of things that their base wants to hear. >> there's a good piece in politico. i don't know if you saw it that michael allen wrote that really sort of walks through why the grand bargain may never happen and i think -- i don't know if it's ben's line or whose but no longer a passing game. it's a ground game. we're just sort of incremental tr
high ahead of the leadership change ahead of the boj tomorrow. >> the bull keeps on going after yesterday's 69-point loss and a bounce expected today as investors look to the fed. it kicks off its two-day meeting today with the best conference tomorrow. meantime, the vote is scheduled in cyprus hours from now and the latest deposit tax scheme. happy anniversary, apple dividend and it was a year ago when the tech giant announced its dividend in 17 years. will apple succumb to the bigger payout as it faces stiffer competition from samsung. lululemon doing the downward facing dog with the transparency with the iconic black yoga pants prompting the retailer to cut sales guidance and boeing clinches an order from ryanair. of course, we begin with the markets. the dow and the s&p 500 hoping to avoid their first three-day losing streak of the year. wall street will be paying close attention in about three hours from now. that country's parliament scheduled to vote on a proposed tax on bank deposits and the controversial measure appears set to go down in defeat. here in the u.s., policy
.s. carrier to drop smartphone subsidies. some call it a sea change in the way these things are sold. jim? >> t-mobile is the one who should be giving the phones away. t-mobile needs the customers. they can do whatever they want to try to stick it to apple and samsung, but the at&t, verizon stranglehold will just become even greater. when i saw this t-mobile i said geez, that's good for dan hessy and that's good for at&t and not that those stocks need any. those stocks have been fabulous stocks and you look at verizon maybe doing a vodafone deal. at&t is the apple company and t-mobile. that's why i said this is phoneacide. that's a great pitch. we're the guys that don't subsidize you that have just an okay service. i don't know, caveat emptor. >> is there nothing attractive about separating the cost of the phone from the cost of the service? >> not to care about t-mobile because they do have the sexist ads that are certainly -- >> i think that in the end we want to know how much great p phone power that we can get for little money. they're doing something i don't understand. i'm sure ther
